Today, attending concerts has become a staple for music lovers. The live entertainment market in India is thriving with demand and consumption having undergone a sea change in recent years. Today, more and more people are planning and attending galas, gigs and extravaganzas to celebrate and entertain themselves. Experiencing music live has become one of the most popular ways that people enjoy the art. From the year 2000 onwards, concerts grew in size due to technological advancements in sound, lights, new screens, projectors, and smaller sized equipment. Moreover, the demand for live music has been on the rise with the growing number of music festivals. In a recent study by PwC, it was reported that the live music industry is expected to project a significant amount of growth in the next few years. The study further states that the live music revenue will increase at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 3.3% by 2022 which includes ticket sales and sponsorship.

There is no doubt that the music industry is gung-ho over live music concerts to connect more deeply with their audience. Many artists are now travelling across the globe to strengthen the connect with their fans across the world. The real bond is created through the nuances of the sound and using the right type of equipment can make your performance shine.

As a DJ, one of the most daunting tasks is selecting the perfect DJ headphones as there are a lot of varieties to choose from. A good noise isolation, punchy enough bass, detail in the high end, and durability are important factors to consider while looking out for a perfect set of headphones.

The Sennheiser HD 25 is the most popular headphones amongst DJs as it is very lightweight and comfortable. Due to their low weight and the option of one-ear listening, the HD 25 headphones are indispensable for mobile monitoring. The closed-back HD 25 are purpose-designed, professional monitoring headphones offering high attenuation of background noise. Capable of handling very high sound pressure levels and of extremely robust construction, these headphones perform exceptionally well in loud environments. Ideal monitoring headphones for cameramen and DJs, these are a pair of true sound professionals’ working headphones.

Wireless in-ear monitors too are one of the most important equipment for any performer. It allows artists to move freely around the stage and to hear an individualized mix. They eliminate monitor feedback worries, potential hearing damage, and the stage clutter of floor monitors.

Understanding these evolving patterns of entertainment consumption and the demand from the industry, Sennheiser has developed a line up to deliver the emotional power and reliability for the best performance every time. Whether it’s a mega concert or an intimate session, Sennheiser has the right vocal and instrument microphones, monitoring headphones and accessories.

For example, the Sennheiser IE 500 PRO dynamic, in-ear headphones for wireless monitoring systems offer musicians, DJs, and sound engineers a rich listening experience with clear, studio-like accuracy, when performing in quiet to moderately loud stage environments. The secure, comfortable fit shields the user from excessive stage volumes and poor room acoustics to deliver punchy sound with transparent midrange. With IE 500 Pro monitors, one can feel more connected to music and audience, allowing performers to be their best version on stage.

While performing in front of a live audience, microphones are an essential component of any artist. It is needed for everything- right from vocalists to instruments that do not have any audio outputs. Sennheiser’s Digital 6000 microphones deliver impeccable RF wireless and audio performance. Designed for demanding live productions, Digital 6000 also addresses the challenges of the shrinking UHF spectrum which in turn allows more mics to operate in less spectrum space. The wireless microphones also provide artists the freedom to move around and bond with audience.

The prominence and preference for live music – be it concerts, or international DJs is poised for a significant growth in the coming few years. This will lead to an increase in demand for superior professional equipment with clutter-breaking technology. This is crucial for brands like us to constantly innovate and create the best to provide an impetus to the love for music this nation has.
